Hautvillers, craddle of Champagne

Stroll around the villagewhere Champagne was born

If there is one place where Champagne really has a meaning, it is Hautvillers. The village, typical of the Champagne vineyards, is the cradle of Champagne. It was here that a certain Dom Pérignon perfected the champagne method, which transformed the wine of Champagne into the king of wines.

As you follow the winding lanes, look up at the original panels created by wine producers on the facades of their houses. Many of them open their doors for you to discover their operations and their cellars and to taste some of their vintages. It's the perfect opportunity to meet these passionate professionals.
